    So seeing as there are tons of cross over items in TF2 (ie: earbuds) I emailed Gabe and asked what would be his favourite cross-over item and why.
    Heres my email

    I kinda expected an automated message :/
    But its funny that its so poorly written

    You get the same automatic response from their. I tried emailing him a few days ago using that e-mail adress and got the same shitty automatic response.

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    His automated response should be "I'm busy making games right now, I'll get back to you when I'm retired"

    Not nice, but honest.

    Fixed (although to be fair, he could have retired off his riches from Microsoft instead of starting Valve in the first place).

    Valve has discovered that there's far more money in content delivery than actual production of such content, for a fraction of the effort. While they still do develop games "on the side," maintaining the CDN is their majority focus now.

    Watching this video and looking at Neko's avatar made my life a bit better for a moment.

    I expected an automated response anyways [​IMG]

    I mean it would've been cool if he actually responded but I would expect him to be busy..

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
